I always visit this place when I fancy a few beers in the Bullock Bar and cannot drive. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are excellent value.

We stayed here twice (on separate occassions) and had a great experience both times. The rooms are a bit out dated, but clean and comfortable. The prices were fab, location is wonderful and the WiFi is very reasonably priced. Also had a great breakfast at the Cheeky Monkey next door.

Hotel Wanaka has average rooms with fantastic service. The rooms were old and out-dated but clean. We had some trouble with our heater, but they provided us with a little fan heater which helped warm up the place. This hotel is in a good location, with a very pretty view. It is spacious and would be good for those travelling on a budget. The receptionist was extremely helpful and checked the road report for us on our departure and was willing to help in any way she could.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bottom floor if you’re travelling with a lot of luggage as there is no lifts.

Had a great stay in Wanaka Hotel , the staff are more then friendly and happy to help. The room are a little old but still very clean. We got ungraded to a garden room and was very happy with this. Its in a great spot and very close to everything and the lake across the road. Would be more then happy to stay here again.

The outstanding friendliness of staff made up for the small, dated hotel rooms. A little over-priced compared to other establishments in south island tourist destinations.

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms are at ground level - easy access. Lake facing rooms have a great view but need...

It's slightly outdated, but it is clean, quiet, well positioned in the heart of town. The top floors accommodates 3 people per room, and have the views. The lower floor up to 4 people. You can make coffee / tea. We were told it was a "3 Star" Hotel, so were not expecting the trimmings you would expect to pay for at the more expensive accommodations. But for our family of 4 having travelled for 3 weeks, for $89 for the night, it served our needs.

Room Tip: If you have no more than 3 in your travelling party, ask for a room on the top floor.
